With the spotlight now being focused on Syria and Libya, I would like to give my point of view on dirty oil.
The world needs oil. The vocal opponents of Alberta oil sands are still driving cars, flying and buying goods that have been trucked long distances. The emerging markets are increasing their demands.
Would you rather buy oil from a Canada with a stable economy, a good humanitarian record, or dirty oil from Libya, Syria, Bahrain or Kuwait?
I say their oil causes more mayhem, death and destruction in the world.
The only real solution is a worldwide push for solar and wind power. There will always be a need for oil for many years to come. I regard oil from Canada as clean.
